Tunes for a Monday Morning

Fox Thieves by Ericilcane

Fox drawing by Arthur RackhamLet's kick off the new year with some kick-ass tunes from We Banjo 3, whose Irish/Old Time/Bluegrass music has been in heavy rotation in my studio lately. The group consists of two pairs of brothers from Galway, Ireland: Enda & Fergal Scahill and Martin & David Howley. (That's Fergal on fiddle, and other three on banjos, guitars, and mandolins.) They've got two fine CDs out so far: Roots of the Banjo Tree and Gather the Good. I haven't caught them live yet, but it's on my Wish List.

Above: "The Fox" (with a jig and a reel: "Tripping Up the Stairs" and The Clumsy Lover"), performed at the Hebridean Celtic Festival on the Isle of Lewis, Scotland (2014).

 Below: "Gonna Write Me a Letter," performed An Taibhdhearc Theatre in Galway (2013).

Third, below:

"We All Need More Kindness in this World," performed at Whelan's in Dublin, Ireland (2013). And we certainly do.

Vee_Jay Terry killin it with Foxy Monday. Coffee full on, projects rollin into the New Year.

Well, that required a bit of mp3 buying... Thanks, you!

It was so much easier when we were Arizona housemates and could share.... Can you believe it's been a year since Endicott West was sold? I'm often still there in dreams.
